How AAP taught members leadership skills

AAP is an effort of all those idealist Indians and NRIs (who have seen how merit and honesty is rewarded in foreign lands) without having any political ideological base. #Anna Hazare #Delhi #Government #Arvind Kejriwal #LetterstoFP #NRI #AAP

Well played AAP has pushed BJP, Cong into a corner in Delhi
